It’s revered as one of the greatest music videos of all time (and at the time, the most expensive video ever made), and now Michael Jackson’s iconic 14 minute short film “Thriller” is getting the 3D treatment.
The video’s original director, John Landis, recently spoke out on plans to revamp the film in 3D with hopes to release it on Blu-ray and possibly in movie theaters by next year.
According to New York Daily News, the new project comes way after recently settling a lawsuit dispute with Jackson’s estate. In 2009 just before Jackson’s death, Landis filed a suit accusing Jackson of “fraudulent, malicious and oppressive conduct” during the filming of “Thriller,” according to Rolling Stone. He was seeking half the net profits from the video, estimated at a value of $1 million
